We figured out how to use those pesky Aspiring Champions of Chaos to best effect!
Is your unit’s Aspiring Champion a real jerk? I know mine is! Are you always trying to stay alive while he’s busy trying to turn into a Daemon Prince at every opportunity and not paying any attention to the rest of the squad who are always covering for his glory seeking?
Tired of your Aspiring Champions picking fights they can’t win, getting killed and then the whole unit getting run down? I know I sure am!
Well friends, we have the solution!
We call this tried and true tactic: hide behind the dumb ass!
Yes folks, it works for us and it can work for you, too!
That Aspiring Champion, aka, Full Retard, is a liability to the rest of the unit and the gang just hopes he turns into a Spawn before he gets the rest of you killed! So here’s how to get the job over and done with and then move on with the business of kicking ass in the Dark Gods’ names!
First step in our process: hide everyone in the unit behind LoS blocking terrain except for the Champion. He stands in the open, where he can get the most glory wink, wink! Here’s a diagram to illustrate the point. The little horned devils are the Chaos unit, the blue fellows with the U are Ultramarines.
Step two, hurl insults at the enemy to entice them to shoot at your unit!
You may have to get creative with those clever Imperials!
That’s the spirit!
Oh, ho, ho! Tzeentch himself couldn’t have crafted a better scheme! The gullible lap dogs of the Corpse Emperor have done exactly what you wanted and shot at your unit! Since the Champion is the only one they can see, he takes all of the wounds! No one is going to be looking out for this one, sir!
Hooray! Now you are free of that suicidal nitwit and can spring the final phase of our plan! Engage those Ultramarines for the glory of the Dark Gods, you may be asking? Hell no, they’ll still kick your butt! You get out of there and look into getting a good disguise, see if you can reenlist into a local Space Marine chapter. They get benefits, cool toys, transports that don’t eat them, respect, their Sarges aren’t constantly trying to get them killed, new equipment, and oh yeah, they Know no Fear!
So there you go, folks! Making those CSMs work is a cinch! And thanks to Tastey Taste for giving me the idea over a really funny conversation at the shop today.
